Great Venue!

This is a wonderful venue for music and shows! Not a bad seat in the house...only 22 rows so it feels up close and personal. Worth the drive from New Jersey! Reasonably priced!

Great talent and all seats are good. The stage turns so everyone gets to see the performers at all angles. The staff is organized and helpful. Drinks are available outside the tent. The big problem comes when the loud performers are there. It is so loud that your ears will be ringing and you will be a little deaf after.... More

The melody tent is one of my favourite summer venues for concerts. There are no bad seats, and you are always close to the performers on the rotating stage under the tent. This year we saw Bonnie Raitt and ZZ top - both superb!

CCMT value differs year by year. Thankfully the focus on faux country acts has relaxed this year. A great, small venue hosting R & R hall of fame acts like Heart, Bonnie Raitt, ZZ top this year. Volunteer workers are fine and helpful. Beer is still way overpriced (9$). Have a drink across the street and save some money. Word... More

We enjoyed The Temptations and The Four Tops last night at the Cape Cod Melody Tent in Hyannis, Massachusetts. It is very similar to it's sister location (South Shore Music Tent) in Cohasset. I love that the stage rotates so everyone gets a good view, but in my experience most bands tent to orientate toward the direction they entered the... More

As the name suggests, it is a real tent. Typical stadium seats as you would find in any concert venue. The tent is round with a revolving stage in the middle, for smaller shows the stage is stationary, and they block off backstage. Either way, not a bad seat in the house. Nice grounds outside of the tent, with a... More

I have enjoyed the tent for many years and marveled at the outstanding talent. My one concern,and others have noted this, is that the instruments can sometimes over power the voices.this could be because of tent acoustics or it could be the sound engineer but I do believe it could be improved for the sake of the audience...just a thought!

We attended a Straight No Chasers concert. The venue is in a "circus" style tent. It can get a little hot under the tent. The sound was great and it was a fun venue to be at. Everyone is close to the circular stage which revolves. If in town worth going assuming someone you want to see is playing.
